I think your location can hear BBC from Ascension in various
languages on 15105, 17810, 17830 kHz and other frequencies at
different times of the day. [snip] For instance, I see BBC in
French on 17885 and 21630 kHz 1800 - 1830 UTC, target WAf


I'll tried just now on 15400 17830 (BBC English program). I can here
it quite loud and clear with my small dipole (s-meter shows 7/9) !
Off the whip, still audible but much weaker (0 on the S-meter).

It is like transmistted from Europe... I can't believe this is so
clear. I've checked in the file : no other transmission is recorded
on that frequency at this time.

I got to compute the distance...

Thanks !

Charly Still newbie, the antenna changes averything...


A whip antenna is as minimum an antenna as you can get. They are
convenient for portable radios. A dipole is a much better antenna. The
antenna is half the receiving system you are using. The antenna captures
the radio energy and the radio uses that signal energy decoding the
modulation back to audio.
